  • Yeah - You feel happy with your budget and then all of a sudden the shipping costs more than the purchase - Buying things is complicated these days with add ons or small print - You have to do what you did and research beforehand to get an idea of what real total cost will be.

      Agree ! I live in Canada , too, and often buy clothes at the United States. The shipping costs are absurd very often, so that I have to use broking services from https://clearit.ca/ , it is way cheaper than direct delivery.

  • That's insane... I don't know what the gel liner stuff is but if it's aerosol or something like that it could be that it can't fly and has to travel by ground. Still not sure how that could cost 30+ dollars though.

    Are the products available on Amazon or other online retailers where you might not have to pay through the nose for shipping?

    • Agree, the price for shipping is huge and unreasonable. I think you should check alternative shipping companies ( I like https://clearit.ca/ ) to deliver your parcel for rather low price in short terms.

  • Shipping costs will cover the shipping by the carrier and may also include insurance and if international there can be other costs, also. But usually it does not add up to much. However, the "and handling" part can add a lot. There is a little to cover things like the materials to box it up and keep it safe inside the box, but also the company will add even more just to make more of a profit.

  • It was probably "shipping and handling". Which can be a lot more than their actual shipping cost, and is a way to make more money off you while making their prices look low.

  • They are using some expensive carriers, or it cost a lot more to ship what they sell?

  • holy cow wet and wild isn't even a *good* brand.

    Miss A might be an alternative for you but domestic will probably be cheaper. http://www.shopmissa.com/
